What’s the status of the project to realign the intersection of Masonboro Loop, Pine Grove and Masonboro Sound Loop roads?

Patrick Gannon

The design is just about complete, and the city is waiting on an N.C. Department of Transporation permit only, said Richard King, the city public services director. After that, the bidding process will begin. King said he anticipates construction to begin at the end of this year or in early 2010.

The project has been delayed in part due to a shortage in staff in the city’s engineering department, he said.

The project includes drainage improvements at that intersection. Plus, when complete, traffic on Pine Grove Drive will continue onto Masonboro Loop Road, with no stop sign. Masonboro Loop Road traffic, similarly, will be able to continue onto Pine Grove without a stop.  Masonboro Sound traffic instead will get the stop sign under the new configuration.

King said the project would cost about $300,000, with most of the funding from the DOT.
